Do you have link to it?

Edit:. Got it thank you for the PM!

Yeah, a few pages ago in this thread Fatty had uploaded both the ICC profile and a link to the install instructions, follow all the steps in the instructions, very simple, very worthwhile! I'm also loving this monitor so far, I fixed the power issues I was having with the displayport, it turned out to be my multiple monitor setup giving it hiccups but all good now.

All credit to FattysGoneWild:

Calibration was done using factory defaults myself. But, all you need to do is adjust brightness and load the ICC profile. Factory brightness was blazing at a whopping 298cm!

Results

Brightness 21 which put it at 118cm. 22 brightness put it at 121cm. Leave contrast alone at factory level. Its fine and does not need adjustment.

ICC profile attached. Follow this article to activate it with in Windows. https://pcmonitors.info/articles/using-icc-profiles-in-windows/

**EDIT** post updated

ICC profile updated with new brightness numbers as well. Initially when first getting it and calibrating. I had lights on in my room. It was picking slightly more light. Factory reading went from initially 304cm to 298cm now with all lights off. Which in turn changed the brightness levels very slightly when re calibrating.

The other thing I think I need to look into is supposedly most, if not nearly all games override the ICC profiles. So you need a different app to force that to persist to games.
I'm waiting until I get the A03 to go digging and dont want to waste time on the A01 if Ill just need to reset and apply other changes.

Yes devs. need to add an option like in The Witcher 3. They have a 'Preserve Gamma" setting that you can turn on. Which carries over the ICC profile and holds. This was a requested feature by me and many others as well. They listened and added it in. To bad more devs. don't do this. Some times you get lucky in games they will hold the gamma ICC profile with out doing any thing. Totally dev. dependent when they make the game.

How can I tell what revision I have? A0x? Where's that located?

Found it! Mine is A02. Is that good or bad?

Yep! Versions past A01 supposedly correct some issues with the monitor. I think one of which involved a major inconvenience with Deep Sleep Mode. It's supposed to be much more reliable in more than a couple respects. You can look up specifics if you want since I'm too lazy, ha.

I recently got the Dell S2716DG from the Best Buy sale! Got lucky and it was the A03 version. However, it has some irregularities with the screen.
http://imgur.com/a/hghwZ

Would anyone be able to offer my advice on if this level of uniformity/bleed/whatever is acceptable? What is that blotch in the upper middle of the screen?? My bezel has a couple mm separation from the screen along all sides, especially the bottom, allowing dust to get into the cracks (none in the screen yet). Is this normal? Just trying to this bad boy lasts, and I've got proper build quality.

Apart from that, everything functions very well without issue!

Thanks so much for the help guys!

Same here. I just got an update that its been shipped and Fedex site is claiming tomorrow.
Not bad, I took off today and tomorrow for bday/rest as I've been under the weather for 2 weeks.
I can attempt to fit both on my desk, take some pics, weep, then send back the old one.
I'll see if I can do a side by side but Im so blind I probably wont notice a difference.

OMG! They have not even shipped mine yet. ***? I literally just blew a gasket when I read this. Those bastards will hear my wrath tomorrow. I would never condone this at all. It makes me want to play dirty now and send mine back to BB. Then if one shows up from Dell finally. Just keep it and send them nothing. But, in the end. I have morals and would not do that. But holy hell this has been so frustrating. mad.gif This brand new defective one has been sitting in the box now for a solid week and now going into the second weekend with nothing to show for!

I try to be mr nice guy and where does it get you? Crapped on. No more mr nice guy dealing with them. I have been nothing but patient and respectful. This is beyond ridiculous now. I bet one reason why they are doing this. They put me on the back burner and lowest priority since I would not do their stupid diagnostic test. When the monitor was already boxed all back up and the defect was physically underneath the screen.

For what it's worth I just kept telling them it would say no signal and going to power save mode. Supposedly it only does that when it is plugged into the PC and pc is off or in standby. Mine really h as problems with that. So I dont know if that would help.
Also theres a built in color checker I didnt know about. I was just going to websites that would full screen the colors, and had me check for bad pixels.
I just said theres a shadowy area.
Dont worry too much. I have so much bad happening to me, this little bit of good isnt too bad.
